A number of disorders can affect the ability to have or enjoy sex, including erectile dysfunction and female sexual problems. Concerns about infertility or fear of unplanned pregnancy can also come into play. In addition, a number of diseases and disorders affect sexual health. These include sexually transmitted diseases and cancer. In men, treatment of prostate cancer can cause erectile dysfunction. In women, cervical, uterine, vaginal, vulvar or ovarian cancer may have sexual effects.

Safe sex

Safe sex means sexual activities that do not involve sharing of body fluids. Body fluids include saliva, urine, blood, vaginal fluids and semen. These fluids can contain germs that spread many infections and diseases to another person during sexual contact. These are called sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). You may get HIV (AIDS virus), herpes, lice, scabies, and genital warts by having unsafe sex. Other STDs that are spread by having unsafe sex are gonorrhea (gone-uh-ree-uh), chlamydia, syphilis, yeast infections, and hepatitis B. Other illnesses, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, flu, and mononucleosis can also be spread by sexual contact.

Sex-linked recessive
Sex-linked diseases are inherited through one of the "sex chromosomes" -- the X or Y chromosomes. Autosomally inherited diseases are inherited through the non-sex chromosomes (autosomes), pairs 1 through 22. Dominant inheritance occurs when an abnormal gene from one parent is able to cause disease even though the matching gene from the other parent is normal. The abnormal gene dominates. Recessive inheritance occurs when both matching genes must be abnormal to produce disease. If only one gene in the pair is abnormal, the disease does not show up or is mild. Someone who has one abnormal gene (but no symptoms) is called a carrier. A carrier can pass this abnormal gene to his or her children. The term "sex-linked recessive" usually refers to X-linked recessive.
